Comprehensive understanding of atrial septal defects by imaging studies for successful transcatheter closure.

Bottom Line: Both the anatomy and morphology of the defect should be precisely evaluated before the procedure.Three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography and cardiac computed tomography are helpful for understanding the morphology of a defect, which is important because different defect morphologies could variously impact the results.During the procedure, real-time 3D echocardiography can be used to guide an accurate closure.

ABSTRACT
Transcatheter closure of atrial septal defects has become a popular procedure. The availability of a preprocedural imaging study is crucial for a safe and successful closure. Both the anatomy and morphology of the defect should be precisely evaluated before the procedure. Three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography and cardiac computed tomography are helpful for understanding the morphology of a defect, which is important because different defect morphologies could variously impact the results. During the procedure, real-time 3D echocardiography can be used to guide an accurate closure. The safety and efficiency of transcatheter closures of atrial septal defects could be improved through the use of detailed imaging studies.

Mentions: Multiple ASDs should be evaluated precisely in terms of device closure (Fig. 5). It is well known that defects within 7 mm of each other can frequently be closed with a single device. We experienced the successful closure of multiple ASDs with multiple ASOs or a cribriform device24).
